Do you love to sing? Do you want to feel this good about your singing?
Whether you are an experienced choral singer, a complete beginner, or if you just want to try something new, Sing Joyfully! vocal ensemble is a friendly, welcoming community choir whose members just love to sing.
If you want to have fun, meet lovely people, improve both your vocal sound and technique, boost your confidence and generally feel great, come and join us.
We meet weekly, working towards concerts in December, late March and June. Warm ups are fun and we develop our voices and vocal technique in rehearsals. Our repertoire is wide and varied, from pop to classical and everything in between, often including arrangements specifically written for the ensemble.
Our well-loved December concerts include Christmas and Advent music, and seasonal music from various world cultures. Our Spring programmes have included medieval to modern day 'classical' repertoire, folk, jazz and pop, musical, tv and film favourites. We try to include something that everyone will love to sing and that our audiences will enjoy listening to. Our Summer themed concerts have been particularly well received, with programmes ranging from Gospel and Jazz, Stage and Screen, Best of British, to An Evening with James Bond.
Our aim is for performers and audience alike to have fun and experience the joy that music can bring.
Concert venues have included the beautiful parish churches in Casterton, Ingleton and Kirkby Lonsdale and we take part in the Kirkby Lonsdale Arts and Music festival annually.
Occasionally we give joint performances with the Kirkby Lonsdale Singers, offering members of the choir an opportunity to perform with a larger ensemble.
We currently meet weekly on Tuesdays at 7pm. Since the lockdown in 2020 we have continued to meet regularly via Zoom, but we are hopeful that face to face rehearsals will start again in September on Mondays.
